I really need to know your thoughts on changing the transmission fluid in a DII. I have been told in a most emphatic manner by Landrover Dealers in South Florida that they do not recommend changing the fluid at all, especially if you have missed any of the scheduled fluid changes. Mine was changed at 30k or so but hasn't had any further changes and I'm now at 116k miles. Whereas the transmission is working perfectly I just cannot bring myself to accept that Landrover made a transmission that really does not require servicing. The stated reason for not recommending fluid changes is that whatever builds up in the transmission, when flushed, actually causes problems even with new fluid. This doesn't make any sense to me. I am further told by my independent LR mechanic that changing the fluid is pretty involved. He doesn't have a lift right now and so would rather not perform the task, something about the extraction of the old fluid being way difficult. What should I do at 116k, should I change the fluid at all cost or should I continue with the sludge. Please feel free to give me all the tips you have regarding this transmission. Oh, mine is an 04 DII. Thanks in advance!!!
